Zen Grungy Monday 3
Zentangle for the Order of the Opus Gluei challenge and playing with my newAdirondack Color Washes by Ranger for the Grungy Monday Challenge #3 hosted by the lovely Linda over at StudioL3 . The Grungy Monday challenges are in honor of Tim Holtz and his many products and techniques. I managed to combine the two challenges in this one card using Stampin Up! stamps no less----what a menagerie of supplies/tools etc!! So, not to go on too much of a tangent here, but, I started with a technique from Jennifer McGuire's blog using the Pearl Paint Dabber from Ranger. You can see the technique on the video in this post. Funny thing is, I had the Pearl Paint dabber on my wish list so long (after seeing this video when it was originally posted) that when I finally got one I couldn't rememeber why I wanted it--ha! I did remember that it had to do with something I had seen on Jennifer's blog so I was able to do some research and found out why. Okay, so the tangent is over, back to the card. I used the technique to create the background using the Wild Plum Color Wash and the Stampin' Up! stamp. Cheated a bit with my first crack at Zentangle and did it on little triangles to create the pennant banner. Have to say, I did like doing it and it is as calming and therapuetic as they say so if you are so inclined, give it I try!
